One of the biggest attractions at Nike DC that opened last October is this amazing display of Air Jordans done up in classic Georgetown Hoyas colors. Located on the top-most floor, this great display stands opposite of the Jordan section, giving customers an exclusive museum-like exhibit alongside the retail experience. While we were in-store for the Nike KD VI iD preview session, we took a quick moment to snap some photos of this legacy of Air Jordans inspired by the basketball powerhouse school located just minutes away. Luckily, after visiting Nike DC, we stopped by Georgetown University to chat with legendary hoops coach John Thompson and his son John Thompson Jr., who is currently the Hoyas head coach. Check out the gallery of each individual Air Jordan from the set and let us know which you like best.

first said 3's 4's 5's hard and as I kept going damn....alot of them were hard....shesshh, nice heat!
the 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 and 13s are the only ones i like the most. the 7s and 8s stand out to me the most. but i like the colors. definetly a dope collection. oh yea and the 23s are dope too.
Just wondering why they keep launching bad CWs when they can acheive perfect combo's like these!!! The Georgetown set would be a retail hit / heat!!!
In this colorway, I think I like the 1 through 5's the most. Especially the 1's. Those are too fresh!
@dajonarro you can't.
@kshaun12can you get these? and if how?
@BThomas1 can you get these? and if how?
@AljosaCikojevic Because they're suede. If they were all leather i would feel em. Miss me with the suede on the 10z, 12z & 13z
@Bigga23 ...stop holdin the god damn cheeseburgers all over ur head nigga...
Are you serious? These are player exclusives, you will never come close to owning a pair let alone touching a pair. Haha but if something crazy happens and you have an opportunity to cop a pair they'll be in the 5k range
@ImpalaLT1 clearly nubuck
Ummmmmm, definitely not a "Player Exclusive" (PE). I'm not sure if you're new to the game or just misinformed but we all have to start somewhere though my man, so don't worry about it. It's actually a Sample Collection called the, "Georgetown Collection" as stated in the article above, it's a display located at the Nike store in DC. There are a few other collections as well......such as the Rainbow, History of Flight, Blackout, Pantone, etc. You are correct about one thing, and that's not being to own them. Although possible.....you may as well forget about it. Put it this way, there is NO price on these collections, otherwise they would have been sold. Basically, you'd probably have to be personal friends with Mike himself. This guy that lives like 15-20 minutes away from me some how owns the, History of Flight collection. It's INSANE......the only thing I can say is that if you really like a pair from this collection is to decide which retro you like the most and then find someone who customizes kicks, tell him which ones you like, (For example; I really like the Georgetown XI's, can you customize those for me? Cool, what base do you think would work best?) He'll tell you the Cool Grey XI's would be the best. Then it's usually up to you to locate the shoe in your size........grab a pair that's dead stock (DS) or very near dead stock (VNDS) and ship them to the customizer of your choice. And BOOM, you now own the closest thing to that actual shoe.
